I just saw the "leak" video on reddit... today I also got an email from amazon saying my preorder for this game was available for download..... the page the link leads to is down/not working as of today.... Something must be coming soon.

    Probably not, someone was either testing the distribution system and made a bad mistake or its part of an intentional hype building campaign.

    There are no miracles in MMORPG development.

    Since I never got this email others got from Amazon, I'm leaning towards it being a mistake - maybe they cancelled the email distribution partway through once they realized what happened. Especially since it's still listed as a game here https://games.amazon.com/games. In regards to the sign up page being down, that could be that they were updating it and broke it in the process or something else. Only time will tell.

    I received the email earlier today and it's a bit odd it happened in conjunction with the media leak. There's a good conversation going in this thread:

    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Actually the more surprising news for me is this title has a preorder, or that anyone actually bought it.

    There's an opportunity here, have to get together with @Slapshot1188, a harbinger's work is never done.

    ;)

    I double checked my email after seeing a comment on the New World reddit, and I received my email on December 13 - exactly one year after I pre-ordered the game. So it's not connected to the leak I don't think. Most likely just an automatic email that gets sent a year after your pre-order since they didn't have a date set. You can't even pre-order Crucible anymore - only get sent an email. So maybe just Amazon trying to stick to their own policies.

    Well it didn't cost anything. It was listed as $0, so pre-ordering was basically just signing up to get updates. Technically it's still listed as an open order on my account for $0, and I can cancel at any time.

    I just got this email a bit ago.

    I got the email as well. It may be some sort of account activation, behind the scenes thing. I doubt beta is any time  soon.
